Chevron Enjoy Science partners with the National Science and Technology Development Agency to unveil the first-ever Maker Faire in Bangkok,
attracting over 10,000 attendees with a full spectrum of inventions and workshops
Chevron Enjoy Science teamed up with the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and the maker community in Thailand to officially launch the “Maker Faire Bangkok 2018” to showcase the country’s burgeoning maker culture to the public. This event featured hundreds of amazing inventions from Thai and international makers, classroom learning materials developed by Chevron Enjoy Science master teachers, and hands-on workshops for makers of all ages. The Faire also opened up opportunities for a new generation of makers to learn from professional makers and come up with their own inventions. This process helped participants develop the type of mindset that will drive the country towards an innovation-driven economy under the Thailand 4.0 policy.
Significantly, the event was recognized as the first full-scale Maker Faire held in Thailand and the largest Maker Faire ever in Southeast Asia. It strengthened the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) knowledge of Thai youth and developed their 21st century skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving, experimentation, and communication for today’s fast-changing world.
